Safety first for MTL Group

Defence manufacturer MTL Group is hoping to achieve recognition for its environmental and health and safety achievements after working with the Manufacturing Advisory Service.

The organisation has already helped the Rotherham-based group, which employs about 320 staff, to gain the SC21 (Supply Chain 21st Century) bronze recognition award, which is recognised by major defence contractors including BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin.

It now plans to achieve further accreditation including ISO 14001 (environmental) and ISO 18001 (health and safety),
